    How to set up Apple HomeKit seamlessly in no time

    Last week in this post, I introduced you to the basics of Apple HomeKit and promised I will write something about its setup procedure in future. Well, it's the time. In this post, I am going to elaborate how to setup Apple HomeKit at your house.

    Prerequisite of using Apple HomeKit:

    HomeKit is Apple’s proprietary software and hardware smart-home platform, linking several smart-home devices including lights, switches, door locks, and thermostats to each other. And after that everything can be controlled by the Home app and Siri. So here are the basic things you need to have for using Apple HomeKit-
    1. iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch with iOS 10 or later version
    2. Devices labeled with “Works with Apple HomeKit”
    However, if you want to control your accessories remotely, you need an Apple TV with tvOS 9.0 or later.
    After that-
    1. On your device, sign in to iCloud with your Apple ID and make sure you turn on iCloud Keychain (iCloud Keychain keeps your Safari website usernames and passwords, credit card information, and Wi-Fi network information up to date across your Apple devices) and Home to edit home users and use accessories on all your devices.
    2. To set up accessories and automation, allow Home to use your location.
